Perfect, thanks Steve.

Great Big Steve, I noticed this morning no troll posts at the top of our page. I think you have solved the problem, now back to TULANE v. DUKE. :)

And again, many thanks for this forum for Tulane Athletics!
:D

Great work as usual Steve. You have always excelled at everything you do.

Why not open voting on polls to non members ? Would get them involved, would be a more representative sample than our "consistent 30", and would probly increase GOTULANE.NET membership.

It is time to take down the FB countdown to game time clock and the only partially filled out 2015 FB results.

by eliminating dead and unnecessary forums: gametracker, ticket exchange, snapshots, merchandise, greenbacker, gumby, rathskeller, other La. Actually, a chronological Board will be an improvement over the current divisive forums.

Why don't you just start your own board, pete? You could format it however you like. I'm sure it would be wildly popular.

Let's start by deleting this thread

I can’t seem to find “Mark all Topics Read” since the server update.

I'll take a look. Part of the server update was also having to update the forum software.

Do you not see the link "Mark topics read" to the left of the paginate buttons:

Just my opinion, but I'm not happy that older posts no longer show the exact date of the post. It just says 5 years ago, or 6 years ago. Is this a feature or a bug?

It’s a feature of the updated forum software. But I’m not sure I like it either. I can take a vote / create a poll and disable if so.

In addition to what R320 said now when we open a link that someone post instead of being able to go right back to the page you were reading on the site you have to close out of the link. On top of that the site really jumps now when you hit first unread post and skips over a couple of new ones so you have to scroll up before proceeding.

* I've updated/fixed the relative vs. actual date issue.
* I've noticed the jumping of the site since the upgrade, still trying to debug that one.
* External links now open in new windows/tabs. Let me see if I can tweak that setting.

I just noticed another issue. The title thread for the Tulsa game was amended and it appears on the Huddle board in the amended version but it still just reads Tulsa Game Thread on the index board.
